Since I am a Patriot from J&K | Jammu Voice




Another year got passed, since the August of 2016 to that of today and the Royal name of the thede of a billions, added another part to Her un-ending chronicle, as She became the Bharat of 2017. Primarily, the bows of a billion heads in the name of Her splendour, on the 70th year-day of Her renaissance.
Ever since the royal Bharat exempted the reliance from the outsiders to build Her own home, it was the welcome of the newer era for all Her different regions. Like its said, a newer dawn was the exchange of power from the hands of the so called foreigners to the men of soil. Despite, maybe the fragmentation of Bharat was as thought to be a way of whole sole better lives to its folk. It went on and the conclusions are well visible in the current date. Although, one region, an exception in its existence became the integral part.

This region which was kept to be the most treasured was designated to be the Pride of Bharat. Indeed, I am talking about the state of J&K. Like the most loved child of a family, favoured and proudly cognomenated to be the crown of Her. It would not be wrong, if its said that the times led to bring a drastic change since then until now, inside the entire arena of its body, in all different aspects. Resulting, a drastic change in its image infront of rest of the country or the world as such. Once the land of sages, sufis and scholars is observed to be the land of rage, violence and disruption. This land of peace and happiness, is now viewed to be of war and bloodshed. Of course, the matter concerns to the lot of residents and innates of it.
This is indeed a matter of overwhelmingness for us as the innate of the state of J&K, that we when get the exposure to the rest of the countrymen, a sense of welcoming for us with all open hearts is what we witness. This certainly explains about the view of countrymen for us , which talks about the richness of us, be it rich naturally, culturally or when they talk about the intelligence and hard working attitude of our men. Of course, the positivness is the total acceptance of us amongst them.
But, the void remains intact when we are meant to answer indubitable questions from their minds, believe me, that’s a true glimpse of what has become the true image of us in their fore. If said, not all but a rare number treat us as no less than aliens or sometimes bear doubtful eyes and then again they avoid their proximity to us. Its hurtsome too, when we are asked about our living in the state, because the question states “how have you managed to survive in a state like J&K for these long years? aren’t you scared of shoot outs, genocides, plebiscites?” and what goes through our minds is a huff to find a way of answering their question, that, its not the way it is thought to be, we live in harmony, we live in peace and the biggest reality is how proud we are to be the sons and daughters of a motherland like J&K, moreover being scared in a sacred land would be something unacceptable to our will. Talk about the education of our youngsters and a never ending doubt is what we have to answer. When people ask, “how can you study there?” “how does the institutions exist and function?” As according to the zig-zag of long lasting curfews and then climatic calamties and again the attacks. If I say, there is nothing pitiful for a student to answer such questions. Yet, answering such stuff on daily basis becomes a habit and an acceptance to the re-created image of the place of your birth.
With a total esteem, being patriot is what we have earned from our forefathers and upbringings. Ask a youngster, one question of his/her feeling for Bharat and what you observe is “Pride”, when with a total aggression and the attitude of boiling blood they say “nation is Mother, She is the Love for She is prime”. And with the same attitude, when you are perceived to be the anti of its glory, anti of the name of such a Mother, its not just acheful because it creates a never ending wound inside the walls of your heart, since you are patriot from J&K. We admit, that we have never faced the dominion, nor we have faced a harder phase for all those three centuries, but we the residents of J&K carry a flow of devotion inside our souls for the Mother, we call Her our Nation. For the triumph of Her spirit, when we send our lads, our boys who work to protect Her dignity from the hunters of Her peace. For we too celebrate the games of tears with come-back of our numb, life-less lads with the epithets of Martyrdom. Pride is what we earn with each of it.

Though, answers to a bundle of questions within the eyes are what we are in reality. A lesser state of disruption, communalism and rage. But more a state of comeliness, divinity, intelligence, happiness, love, hospitality, culture, frith and above all Jammu & Kashmir is an egregious example of “oneness in distinctiveness”.
The treatment of the nation towards us as a of a special status, a special be-handling is not the indebtedness, but is the infinite equality and un-breakable unification of us as a nation. Hence, it says, “ It hurts me when you call me by half of my name, dear children of the great Mother, call me Jammu & Kashmir and not mere Kashmir. It hurts when you call my kids with half of their identity, they aren’t mere Kashmiris, they are the mighty Dogras and Kashmiris and Sikhs and Ladakhis. I am the land of Jammu & Kashmir, the land of Dogra dynasty, the Patriot, the land of tranquility, harmony, peace and not mere of violence, disruption and war.”
On the celebration day of sovereignty of Bharat, a Happy Independence to us all.
Dr. Radhika J. Sharma.

Ayurvedic Perspective of Sleeplessness



By Dr. Milan Singh

Sleeplessness originates in More-Excess air elements

Acc. : Ayurveda


Ayrurveda holds that the human being is precipitated from a higher,
subtle consciousness, and has taken on “coursings” such as ahuman
body. It is said that 5 elements fire, water, air earth and ether makes
human body collectively all to Ayurveda.

We, will focus on the air elements qualities and actions according
to the parent science of polarity therapy. Ayurveda for treating
sleeplessness, a disturbing common disorder today.

The air element is the second in density of the 5 elements
comprising the human body, mind and consciousness. Prana (life force)
expressed as the air elements govern’s movement (rajas guna) and
agents of movement such as the human nervous system, sensory
systems, respiratory system, structural system, peristalsis, association,
choice and ascension.

It characteristics qualities are dry, light, cold, mobile, subtle and
changeable. Its main sites are the calan, joints, skin, ear canals,CNS

and “marna” points. Here begins the daily journey of winding down into
sound, restorative sleep.

The air, element also maintains auric field and negative electrically
charged polarities and its chakra and meridian movements. There
begins the journey of reining in the mind each evening. The mental
channels are under the jurisdiction of their owner who can develop life
affirming habits.

The air element, when balanced and in its right places, functions
to govern timing such as coordination of digestive values opening and
closing, blinking, maintainable and endocrine order, cellular
communications and cosmic awareness. When imbalanced, subjective
signs such as gasses, sleeplessness, joint popping , sensory
impairment, constipation, vertigo, auditory delusions, anorexia,
forgetfulness, fears or treamors can develop.


The air element expresses in 5 element system and pathways in
human life.

Prana (inspiration, assimilation, sensory communication), Vetana
expiration, speech, motor communications), Samana (abdominal

digestive oscillation), Apana (pelvic elimination, stabilization grounding
etc. and vyana (cordial, lymphatic and thermal circulation)

For example, sleeplessness calls for downward moving
protocols while respiratory diseases such as Asthma, bronchitis,
pneumonia, copal etc. involve more upward or Udana. Related


Marma points are thought of in Ayurveda as doorways to the
higher consciousness, awareness of these doorways helps awaken
insight into the ones symptoms causative factors. Through still point
contacts, prana is invited to restore its natural balance by experiencing
letting go of under physical, emotional or spiritual pain. Exhalation
becomes an important pathway of wariness of choice. Retaining the
mind and body for stillness is more important for vata person, who can
become more easily influenced by sensory stimuli such line
temperature changes, sound etc.


Means to restore stability and balance to prana life, by focusing
on protocols to contact its main sites and doorway. The respiratory,
CNS, Endocrine system and facial systems are all important sites of

prana, affecting habitual subconscious inhalations of life forces. The
pulmonary grid sites of the thoracic cavity, both front and back serve as
important doorways for deepening the inhalation and exhalations.


Ancient yogic breathing practices help retain the minds pattern’s
from agitation to claimless, from self centeredness to self centeredness
easily at home, one can practice anulom-viloma, alternate nostril
breathing, making the breath deeper fuller and more silent with each
lack successful breath, leading to mastery over one’s breath and one

By remembering ones true stillness, the mind is restored one

At home, use a late afternoon tea of equal valerian, hops and
chamonails. At bedtime, about 9:30 pm in winter and 10:30 pm in
summer, take a warm bath c 1/3 cup sesame oil rinse, towel dry and
sleep deeply visually informed (piita) sleep deprivation unprocessed or
undigested visual images can build up in the grey matter and fascia,
when one’s mind is busy at midnight and moreso when the eyes are
exposed to radiation, pitta increases in the nervous system, burning the
balances of nairo –transmitter’s and harmones. By reading to fall asleep

as compared to sitting for meditation in the evening ones eyesight will
gradually weaken. Meditation gives emphasis to restoration and repair
of cells, similar to deep sleep. At home eye drops of castor oil can be
used at bedtime, it help in falling asleep quickly. Once asleep, pitta is
more likely to remain asleep.


This protocol involves systematically balancing the thoracic cvity
through the inter costal marma points horizontally and the 5 elements.
Both anterior posterior points can be balanced simultaneously for
profound restoration of function while the client relaxes prone. The
marma points Sanskrit names help activate vibrational balance
throughout the points range of structural and functional influence.
Snoring can lead to apnea, a cause and complication of prolongs
sleeplessness so one should practice daily Ujjayi Pranayam


In Ayurved and Yoga meditation is considered as the first and last
medicine for all symptoms, suffering and delusions forgetfulness of mind
get’s reduced by practicing meditation.

Sit facing eastward in the early morning and evening, ideally in the
same location, each day. The body will look forward to retain the
position in resting mode and mind to introverting, providing deep rest to
the physical and mental stresses of life.

With autogenic suggestions and re-training the mind can become
the servant it is meant to be, rather than a pseudo master, trying to steal
away over in born tranquility yes, the peace lies deeper than the
agitation of worries and anxieties so we must look deeper do meditation
and relax our mind, keep it at calmness and rest so that we can achieve
a sound sleep, longevity vigour and utility.

‘Militants killed in encounters of Jammu & Kashmir were post-2016 recruits’



Police chief S.P. Vaid explains Shopian, Anantnag operations

All militants who were killed in multiple operations in Jammu and Kashmir on Sunday joined the terrorist outfits post-2016, J&K police chief S.P. Vaid told leading National Daily The Hindu on Tuesday.

Mr. Vaid asked people from Kashmir to “introspect” whether the violence aided by Pakistan from across the border “was doing them any good.”

Thirteen militants were killed as security forces launched “coordinated,” multiple operations in Shopian and Anantnag in south Kashmir on Sunday. Three Army men lost their lives in the operations.

The Kashmir Valley saw a surge in the number of local boys joining terrorist outfits after Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) commander Burhan Wani and two others were killed in an encounter with security forces on July 8, 2016.

Pellet guns

Mr. Vaid said a large number of protesters had gathered at the encounter site and there was no way to avoid the use of pellet guns. Four civilians were killed. Scores of them are being treated in Srinagar hospitals for pellet injuries. Some were hit in the eye. Mr. Vaid said, “The mob was pelting stones at security forces at the encounter site. When militants fire indiscriminately, the bullets don’t see if they will hit an Army man or a civilian. It was an open area and tear gas shells and PAVA shells were also used, but they remained ineffective,” he said.

According to Mr. Vaid, this was the first time in many years that an operation of this scale had been launched in Shopian.

He said he hoped the operations did not impact the tourist season in the Valley. He dismissed allegations by Pakistan that “human shields” were used in Sunday’s encounters. “When has Pakistan spoken the truth? Pakistan claims to be a friend of Kashmir but all this (violence) is their doing,” he said.
